A special birthday outing was the reason for our first visit to this hotel and we chose one of their many innovative special deals which in our case was the Sunday dinner bed and breakfast deal. We were greatly impressed.
We reiterate the many notes of praise on trip adviser for the friendly and helpful staff, the quality of rooms and well located central location of this hotel. In all respects we were greatly impressed.
I would like to focus on another area which caught our attention and that was the ease with which the hotel was able to cope with many disparate groups of people all at the same time. For example on Sunday when we arrived there were diners in the upstairs restaurant whilst downstairs in the two bars we witnessed local boat owners who had come in for a pint and a natter, family lunches, tourists out for a walk just needing a coffee and a football club team whose match had been cancelled. Later a jazz group played in one bar whilst in the other there was a double screen showing of a rugby match.
On the following morning we were astonished to see roast joints being cooked on an open fire in the main bar, not far from a ladies committee meeting and further down the bar was a family group celebrating a birthday, not to mention the locals at the bar reading the free newspaper.
All these activities went on without anyone batting an eyelid but always under the watchful eye of the attentive approachable staff.
Clearly this is a well run hotel. Well done everyone.
